I have it, but i ignore it cause i dont like to think theres anything wrong with me
It prevents me from meeting new people, asking a question, public speaking, working a job, etc...
Its really a phobia of being judged by others, i think.

nah.. sounds like, you're just introverted.. totally repairable, no meds required. S.A.D. is when you get panic attacks in crowded places, talking to a stranger and getting cold sweat.

I'm more familiar with the "post cabin-fever S.A.D." It's when you stay indoors too long and when you finally go out.. "damn.. so many people..." "oh shit! i made eye contact.." this type of S.A.D. is usually temporary. hanging out with friends is usually the cure.

Well, I cannot really say I have Social Anxiety Disorder. I don't dislike being in a crowd nor do I mind being on stage.

I don't like talking to people, but I end up talking a lot.

I think I may have a little but of S.A.D because I will get really nervous when I meet with new people and when I was put into a group of people that I totally don't know, I don't know what to do in these kind of situation( I do know what to talk with them and they seem uninterested with me when I talk [just for a little bit only] and will end up alone......

When I'm in school, I think I just talk about 4-6 line every day ( excluding greeting to teacher) and always end up gazing on the ceiling or something else or always go to toilet (when the teacher is not teaching)

Besides that, I also like to avoid to attend any kind of gathering because I will always end up being alone and bored...
It is not that I don't want to socialize with people but somehow I cannot because I cannot hold a conversation( I'm sometime even not talking at all)and sometime I feel bored ( because they just talk about the same topic like education only when with me.......)
I also afraid to look straight into people's eye......

I have a very low self-confidence(maybe because of my appearance(I'm quite chubby) and I'm also a very shy person) and I really hope that I can improve myself and become a more friendly person.......

I don't know if I have it. I just avoid crowded places and don't talk to anybody. It works out quite well.

Some of these people don't really have the disorder, I'm confident. More like they're shy and want a reason for it? XD

Either way, I think that if you have a few set friends, you can get through. It is kind of a paranoia from my understanding?

I have some serious issues with social interaction at times... especially with people I don't know nor have anything in common with. As an example I get very nervous when there is some school project and you have to present it in front of class and so on, I still do even though I've been in the same class for almost 3 years now.

I checked it up a little and found symptoms that fit in a little on me:
- The fear of making telephone calls is typical, both answering and picking up. <--- I almost never answer my phone if I don't recognize the number. But I think I'm just scared that it will be a phone salesman speaking finnish, (Swedish speaking finn over here ~ ) and I have absolutely no idea what to do, so I simply don't answer it anymore, Instead I wait and later check the phonenumber.
- May be overly self-conscious. <-- Okey that one may be completely true
- Social anxiety disorder is a persistent fear of one or more situations in which the person is exposed to possible scrutiny by others and fears that he or she may do something or act in a way that will be humiliating or embarrassing. <-- that may come unconsciously I think since like I said I get really nervous even minutes before presenting in front of class

I'd rather call it a very minor? version of S.A.D ...
That was a rather long post ;D

Its supposed to be social anxiety. I think its just a mental thing. They got public speaking and other kinds of therapy. Eh its really not a big deal you'll live just miss out on life if you don't.

Don't worry a lot of people have it. Take a class for confidence and stuff.
Good Luck! May Raptor Jesus help you all!

I get nervous when people start talking to me about their problems and who they killed and who they took advantage of. Don't know why random people do it either like in a restaurant. I don't ever wear a priest's clothes! Not even for Halloween. I got real nervous when my friend said "dude...I think I'm a pedophile" took me a couple of seconds to react but then I said "its completely Natrual cause most guys are attracted to younger looking women and don't women become fertile and pheromones and stuff start around 12-14 years old? Society just doesn't think you should mate right now" Then when my sister got older he stopped liking her and i never heard from him. See Happy ending. Maybe being nervous around people is good?
I remember working in Mcdonalds and these gang-members started talking about who they killed and stuff they did. They look at me and said "what do you think?" I just ate my chicken nugget(cause their awesome) and said "eh...gang members have their own kind of honor...I respect that"
You ever have on of your friends constantly tell you how he cheats on his wife and then regrets it? I think I'm start charging people!
i got real nervous when these other guys pulled up to me and said "give me your money or Ima bust a cap in your ass!"
i felt bad cause I only had a dollar on me and they took it. All true by the way. I guess you really just gotta watch out if it gets too outa hand.
some people don't like being in elevators cause they got it? Its weird cause i was thinking about this and it just happened to be up...
